DIY Christmas Wreath




About: Hi! Welcome to my page!

This DIY Christmas wreath is a super fun craft, and great addition to your holiday decor!

Step 1: Supplies

You will need a cardboard donut any size you want. Mine was 12" from top to bottom, and the hole was 5" from top to bottom. You also need a thicker kind of wire ribbon (I used a burlap looking kind), present wrapping ribbon (thinner then the first kind), glue gun, glue sticks, Christmas balls, pine branches, paper clip, and whatever other little accessories you want to add.

Step 2: Hanger

Take you paper clip, bend it as shown, and glue it to the back of the donut. This will be the hanger.

Step 3: Gluing the Ribbon

Glue (with the glue gun) your ribbon in a bumpy pattern, with about 2 inches between each bump. First glue around the outside, and then do the same around the inside. Stagger the bumps a bit so that there is some variety.

Step 4: Add the Pine Branches

I grabbed some mini pine branches from our Christmas tree, about 3 inches long, but you can trim some off of any tree you want. Glue the branches around, between the bumps in the ribbon, under the bumps, and wherever else you feel needs it.

Step 5: Adding Balls

Glue the Christmas balls in between the gaps, filling out the wreath. I also rooted up mini sparkly styrofoam balls, to add more character.

Step 6: Finishing Touches!

I sprinkled some sparkly silver glitter over the wreath, and glued on some cute mini bells. And your done!!!

    So pretty! I love how the ribbon is done so simply but adds just the right touch to fill everything in and make all the colors really stand out :)
